DIY Corner Bookmark with Cricut

March 17, 2017

This is a very simple project to create with your Cricut. The Corner Bookmark uses three attributes of the Cricut. First it will score the paper, then draw the design, and finally cut out the shape. The great thing about having the Cricut draw for you is that you can use a different colored pen to draw with. In this case, I am using black but using gold on a colored cardstock would be beautiful too. 

 

 

 

Materials:

  • Cricut Cream Cardstock
  • Cricut black pen 0.4
  • Cricut with scoring pen
  • Adhesive (Glue Dots)
  • Colored Pencils

 

Files:

 

Directions:

 

The following video will describe how to set up your file in Design Space.

 

 

score
The first step the Cricut will run is scoring the two folds.

 

 

pen
Design Space will then direct you to replace the scoring tool with your pen.

 

 

cutting
The last step the Cricut will make is cutting the paper.

 

 

project
Once the machine is done and you remove the mat,
you can remove the excess paper and then they bookmark shape.

 

 

folding
Turn the bookmark over so you can not see the drawn design.
Fold the flap without the drawing first.


 

2nd fold
And then fold the corner with the drawing.


 

adhesive
Add adhesive (Glue Dots) between the two layers.
At this point your bookmark could be done, but for this tutorial, we will take it a step further and color in the design.

 

 

coloring
Using colored pencils, or any other coloring implements, color your design however you desire.

 

 

finished
After coloring is finished.

I am happy to have worked with Cricut on this project.

Fun project! I didn't realize Cricut was also a plotting tool! Cool :)

What a fun project! My kids would enjoy coloring in their own bookmarks, too! Thanks for sharing at My Busy Beehives #beeparty this week!
